2. Yogurina & Suntory Natural Mineral Water

This is a yogurt-flavored water with a crisp aftertaste that also has Suntory Natural Mineral Water as its base. Whey, which is a colorless milk derivative that includes minerals and amino acids, is used to achieve both the richness and light aftertaste of yogurt. The characteristic slightly sweet and bright aroma of yogurt is created by combining fermented milk and fruit-based scents.
